Because it's obvious that I have the -- that -- convince anybody to do any thing with the. -- -- -- -- -- After her strategy you know we were -- got a beautiful family now you know. They don't what I've learned -- and was really important for people who realize. Failure is a great teacher. I think when you when you when you make mistakes and you recover from home and you treat to mistakes as valuable learned experiences. -- you've got something to -- you know I don't not really a relationship expert. What my Forte is -- expert on man who and what -- think. I noticed that all this charity work the foundation.

I mean I wasn't going all -- she says Steve is important for all us. To be out there and all of. How. Can you change -- child has had sadness for most of their life for felt a loss because their father was in the family. How can -- change that in just a weekend. Those we kids are critical. And they're very effective. Because if you give a young boy a snapshot. Both man and a for a -- -- of what it looks like. Something he can pull out his pocketing the -- that just a very important moment in the child's life. If you could just meet some gas well. We're just one -- work.
